Royals and Aristocrats on video and DVD
I thought it would be nice if everybody could tell which royal video he has . Or if someone knows where you can buy royal videos post here:

I have three royal DVDs:

TV2's Kongeligt Bryllup, which is Frederik and Mary's wedding. I haven't actually watched the entire DVD due to the fact that it is Region 2 encoded. I was able to view some of the raw VOB files by using my DVD-RW drive. This is a two-disc set, and I don't know much about what is on them.

DR's Frederik & Mary - Det Kongelige Bryllup. Basically the same thing, but region-free, so I watched the whole thing on my DVD player. It is a two-disc set - disc one covering the whole wedding from the arrival of Princess Alexandra to the banquet and fireworks in the evening. The second disc has clips from the royal weddings of the other members of the Danish royal family, and some interviews as well. Some of it was in English. I got to hear Mary speak Danish.

TVE's Boda Real - Felipe and Letizia's wedding. This one is all-region encoded. It has the royal wedding, and clips from the wedding of Juan Carlos and Sofia, Inaki and Christina and Jaime and Elena. Oddly enough it has only one menu, so you can't choose which scene to start with.

I have three VHS tapes of some American TV shows featuring royals - Meet the Royals. I have two tapes from that series - one with the Princesses of Europe episode and the other with Princes of Europe. The third VHS tape is the A&E Biography episode on Queen Noor. I have a fourth tape, called 16 Royal Families. It's one hour and it just covers the basics on various royal families.

Then I have a huge collection of tapes that have programs recorded from TV, but that would take forever to type up the details.

royal videos here is a website where you can get videos of the royal families. Amazon has some of princess diana.

MihoshiMarie 02-01-2005 11:31 PM

Hi. Here is a website where you can buy both of the Danish royal wedding DVDs I listed in my first post. It is called Kelkoo, and it's kind of like Froogle. It lists online stores offering the DVDs at different prices.

You can buy TVE's Boda Real (the wedding of Felipe and Letizia) at El Corte Ingles.

Amazon is offering a boxed set of Royal Families of the World. This is the series that airs on WE every now and then (I think it was a Romance Classics original). This contains three VHS tapes.

You can also buy each of the three tapes separately:

Monaco, Spain, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Hapsburgs
Great Britain, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium
Japan, Thailand, Morocco, Jordan

I also found something called Royal Bloopers at Amazon, although you will have to buy it used.

At the Discovery Channel's website, you can buy Jordan: The Royal Tour on VHS.
I will post more links if I find any.

The wedding DVD includes the speeches at the reception but the part showing guests arriving at the church is missing.
It has the engagement interview with the press.

I bought it a month or two back at and ABC shop in Hobart(Australian Broadcasting Commission). I'm sure that they would have copies in one of their outlets in OZ. They could I'm sure be purchased from them over the net.

Thaks for that I just checked out the E! site and no such items came up for the curse of the royal family but young royals did but you can't purchase it.

gorty4 09-12-2006 09:46 PM


this is the official wedding dvd of Felipe and Letizia. Unfortunatly it does not seem available any more on internet.

you can always look on eBay.

And for those who are interested, the link for the wedding Dvd of Willem-Alexander and Maxima (still available)


gorty4 09-27-2006 11:42 PM

Hi :smile:

for those who are interested I found this website the website is in Dutch.

it contains several dvd (copy of tvshow on dvd) like Laurent and Claire wedding, Mathilde and Philippe.... What a great idea for those who couldn't see them at the time.

sad that there are not such a website for the Scandinavian's marriages. I really would like to see weddings of Martha Louise and Ari, Joachim and Alexandra.:sad:


P.S. I'm not sure if this kind of website is legal, so Please feel free to delete my poste if not.

Boda Real
I think you can buy Boda Real here :

gorty4 10-16-2006 07:28 PM


I'm a fan of royal weddings and since I live in Canada its impossible to see such events (except British royal family). So I made research on internet and I found this:

Official Dvd of Maxima and Willem-Alexander's wedding(region 0):

Official Dvd of Letizia and Felipe's wedding (region 0)

Official DVD of Haakon and Mette-Marit's wedding

Official VHS (NTSC) of Edward and Sophie's wedding

Official VHS (PAL) of Edward ans Sophie's wedding

Official VHS (PAL) of Andrew and Sarah's wedding

Official VHS (PAL) of Charles and Diana's wedding

And finaly this website (in Dutch) it contains several dvd (copy of tvshow on dvd) like Laurent and Claire wedding, Mathilde and Philippe....
What a great idea for those who couldn't see them at the time (like me :sad: ).

I am always at the research of video of :

-Alexandra and Joachim's wedding
-Märtha-Louise and Ari's wedding
-Constantijn and Laurentien's wedding
-Cristina and Inaki's wedding
-Elena and Jaime's wedding

Since these video was never commercialised, I search someone who recorded them at the time. If you know someone, please send me a private message :smile:

Thank you,

"Royal Christmas" at ZDF History, 2007
ZDF History will show a program called "Weihnachten bei Majestäten" ("Christmas with their Majesties) at December 23rd at 23:25-00:10. - History
They'll show the ways the European Royals celebrate Christmas.

Her_Majesty 12-24-2007 07:33 AM

It was quite an interesting docu.

The only strange thing was that they forgot to mention the Danish Royal House... ;)

I never knew Princess Brigitta of Sweden speaks perfectly German.
I loved how she talked about the past when she had to dress as Santa Lucia, because she has tha longest , blond curls.
They showed some really cute pictures of Carl Gustav as a toddler.

I guess ZDF will add the little movie to their mediathek soon. ;)

Intresting, thanks for the info Her_Majesty. Sounds like an intresting programme. When they showed the royals celebrating Christmas, what year did they start showing it from? or was it just the year 2007?
